The most contagious laugh in Vancouver.
I don’t know what it is about me, or about Vancouver, but the world is seeming increasingly smaller as I progress with my project of photographing strangers. I had seen this lovely lady from afar twice, before eventually taking her photo. Both times, I thought wow, that girl is so cool, I would LOVE to take her photo, but I didn’t have the courage to. In the end, when we saw her again, one of my best friends took the reins (ignoring my protests), and approached her for me. When she turned around, I realized that while I had spent so much of that time being self-conscious and shy, her and I had actually met before. In fact, we were Instagram friends.
About a year prior, Tilda had brought me into this woman’s place of work. She had said, you have to see her. She is #hairgoals, and you should take her photo. At the time, she was busy working, but we followed each other on Instagram, and I talked a bit about doing a photoshoot, but I never followed up.
Fast forward to now, I am so glad that I got the chance to take her photo in such an impromptu way–the way that I wanted Project Natural to work.
